Patrons are treated to friendly service and generous portions of expertly seasoned and beautifully presented cuisine including gluten-free dishes. Large parties are welcome. Take-out, all-day delivery and catering are available. Try the chef’s daily special, plus unique dishes made just for you on request.


Guests enjoy the ambience of this charming converted log home with oak wainscotting, Chinese art, a first floor fireplace and whimsical tree trunk table tops.
